In about 1 week on January 20 Autum is going to launch their 2018 parts collection. If you happen to be in Berlin, Germany then you can join them in their store. The rest of us will find the new stuff on autumbikes.com.
A new 2018 frame has already been revealed: "One highlight of our 2018 collection is for sure Kevin Nikulski´s PIVN signature frame! This FlatStreetWhatever allround machine will be available in sizes 19,9" / 20,5" / 21" in translucent matte black and translucent matte hazegreen."
Let's take a look at the updated Turbo frame for 2018. Dub is rocking the 19.3" version of it and the 18.8" version is still available as well. The frame got a little heavier but that's probably the weight of the longer top tube version. 4 colors are available including banana which Dub rode to victory at numerous contests last year.

Excellent new edit of Dub! Some of you might be wondering what's the connection between Dub and China .. here you'll get all the answers and a bunch of sick combos on top of that!
"In February 2007, I left for China to do shows in an amusement park for 11 months, totally unaware that that experience would change my life forever, I now find myself going to China 2-3 times a year, I speak and read a fluent Chinese Mandarin and run some bmx teams in China!
Now more than 10 years later I revisit Shenzhen and lay down some previously unpublished tricks on some of what I thought were the most iconic and favourite of my spots ; OCT Shenzhen IKEA underground parking lot, OCT Shenzhen Walmart spot and beautiful ShiminZhongxin (市民中心）spot at the end. I used to live in a place called BaiShiZhou (白石洲) within Shenzhen (深圳） , an area now set to be demolished in the coming years to build apartment towers. I am very grateful that everything lined up so I could film it the way I saw it back then before the past was erased.
You might have heard of Shenzhen City, an old fishing village just north of Hong Kong turned into a World Class city in some 30 to 40 years! It is often referred to as the NYC of China! I've always wanted to document this ''second life'' I lead and hope you can enjoy it as much as I enjoy bringing it to your device!"
